Tax Investigations Service

There has never been a more important time to protect yourself against the expense of an HMRC tax investigation.  Many enquiries are selected at random and, if HMRC investigate your tax affairs, you must cooperate.


Please bear in mind that the representation costs for a typical tax investigation can often escalate, not because you have made a mistake, but because you are required to prove yourself innocent of any wrongdoing.  HMRC investigation activity is now commonplace, so please consider how the costs and time of a tax enquiry would impact on you and your business.


More information about our tax investigation service is available by contacting Sara at this office.  If you have subscribed in the past, we advise that you renew the service this year due to the increased risk of an enquiry.
